The platform, dubbed "Ten-X Homes," was rolled out at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival in March. According to an announcement from Ten-X, Ten-X Homes provides consumers and real estate profes - sionals with enhanced flexibility, control, and simplicity, and is optimized for use on desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Ten-X Homes will allow consumers—on their own or with the help of a real estate agent—to do everything involved in the process of buying and selling a home. Users will be able to search for homes or easily create their own property listings, negotiate prices and terms, manage offers, and complete sales transactions all online. Hundreds of homes will be available for purchase nationally from a wide range of sellers, including banks, investors, institu - tions, home builders, and Realtors— all of which will be listed by an agent and offer a broker's co-op. Additionally, homeowners will be able to create their own listings on the Ten-X Homes platform initially in four markets: Dallas, Miami, Phoenix, and Denver. "Real estate is moving online," said Jason Allnutt, General Manager of Ten-X's residential real estate business unit. "Over 90 percent of home purchases include searches on websites like Zillow and Trulia. Ten-X works with those companies to offer the only true end-to-end online transaction process—from the listing and searching phase through the close of escrow—em - powering buyers, sellers, and their agents with a safe, simple transpar- ent way to buy and sell real estate." Ten-X Homes streamlines the negotiation process by enabling buyers and sellers to submit, accept, and reject counteroffers easily and with complete transparency. At any given time, a buyer, seller, agent, title or escrow officer, or lender can securely log in and use Ten-X's proprietary Transaction Manager feature to complete their tasks online and see when the sale is expected to close. "There is an enormous opportu - nity to garner a significant share of the $1.1 trillion residential real estate market by delivering an easier, more transparent, complete end-to-end online solution that appeals to the consumer market," Ten-X CEO Tim Morse said. "Ten-X offers a proven platform, a simplified process, and the information and tools needed for everyone to confidently buy and sell real estate online—whenever they want to and from wherever they are."
